|Offense, bullpen let Hiroki Kuroda down in no-decision |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/28/14) Yankees pitcher Hiroki Kuroda was at the top of his game Thursday against the Tigers, but did not get much help as he was forced to settle for a no-decision in a 3-2 loss.
Kuroda limited the Tigers to two runs over seven strong innings of work, but had to settle for a no-decision as the offense failed to back him up. He scattered four hits and a walk over his seven innings of work, while striking out four batters in the no-decision.
Kuroda is just 2-2 over his last six starts, despite allowing three or fewer earned runs in each start. He carried a 3.88 ERA and 9-8 record into his next start, set for Wednesday against the Red Sox.
|Hiroki Kuroda rolls to ninth win by limiting White Sox |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/23/14) The steady production of Yankees right-hander Hiroki Kuroda continued Saturday against the White Sox.
Kuroda managed his sixth quality start in the last eight outings by holding Chicago to just two runs on five hits in six innings. He walked two and fanned six.
It didn't look pretty in the first two innings when Kuroda gave up three doubles, including one to Aramis Ramirez that drove in the first run of the game. But Kuroda settled down to retire 10 of the next 12 batters he faced.
Kuroda is set to start again Thursday in Detroit.
|Hiroki Kuroda turns in quality start vs. Rays |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/17/14) Yankees starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda put together a quality start Sunday against the Rays, improving to 8-8 on the season. The right-hander permitted two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out one over 6 2/3 innings of a 4-2 victory.
Kuroda has allowed three earned runs or fewer in each of his last three starts. He owns a 3.97 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP over 25 starts (154 innings). His next start will come Saturday against the White Sox.
|Yankees announce rotation after rainout, skip Hiroki Kuroda |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/12/14) The Yankees will skip Hiroki Kuroda's next turn in the rotatio in order to give the pitcher some extra rest.
In the wake of Tuesday's postponement, the team announced that Michael Pineda would remain Wednesday's scheduled starter, with Brandon McCarthy due to pitch Friday, Shane Greene set for Saturday and Chris Capuano, who drew the start Monday, getting the call Sunday.
|Control problems send Hiroki Kuroda to loss Sunday |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/10/14) Control problems plagued Yankees starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda during a 4-1 loss Sunday against the Indians. The right-hander allowed three runs on five hits and a season-high four walks, while striking out three in 4 2/3 innings.
Kuroda (7-8) fell behind early as Michael Brantley had a one-out RBI single in the first inning. Brantley came back with a sac fly in the third inning to give Cleveland a 2-0 lead.
Kuroda was then chased from the game when he issued a bases-loaded walk in the fifth inning. Kuroda issued his first bases-loaded walk since he was a major league rookie in 2008, according to STATS.
Coming into Sunday, Kuroda had issued more than two walks just twice in 23 starts. He is winless over his last three starts. He will be back on the hill Saturday at Tampa Bay.
|Hiroki Kuroda finished 2013 with a 3.31 ERA and 1.16 WHIP -- numbers nearly identical to his 2012 campaign (3.32 ERA and 1.17 WHIP). He's been the picture of reliability since his 2008 debut, and the fact that he's 39 this season doesn't mean much more than the fact that he was 38 in 2013. Kuroda isn't going to bring a lot of strikeouts to the table (he has a 6.8 K/9 over six seasons), but there's significant Fantasy value in a pitcher you can count on to throw 200 innings and keep ERA and WHIP low. Kuroda is one of the more underrated assets in Fantasy, and should be off the board by the middle rounds of most drafts.
